Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Girls CODING Clubs



Each Girls Coding Club session will teach the concepts that form the basis of all programming languages such as: loops, variables, conditionals and functions, through fun, hands-on, discovery-based activities. We run clubs at both the beginner and intermediate level, and for different ages. Check the program details below to see what levels we are currently running.

The club will also connect participants with like-minded, supportive peers and role-models who will encourage girls to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields. 

 

  • Grade 4-6

     

    All Girls Introduction to Programming: Scratch 4-6

    Have you ever wanted to create your own video games, and bring your imagination to reality? Over our 4-week virtual coding club, we will focus on foundational coding concepts such as variables, loops and operators using scratch and and applying what we learn to build video games!

    The club will also connect participants with like-minded, supportive peers and role-models who will encourage girls to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.
